You determine the purpose of this lovely little vessel. It is a hand-built lidded box with the "Wallpaper Collection" stamp inside and out. It has a wonder finial for a handle. With your tea it may be a teabag dispenser or a small sugar bowl. Perhaps it is a place for jewelry and trinkets. It's handbuilt and made with a folk-art charm so the lid is not snug as it is with D.Wilson~Art bee vessels and othe containers made on the wheel.
The container part stands nearly 2 inches tall and has approximately 2 3/4 diameter.
